I love a good one bowl recipe and these vegan lemon muffins recipe doesn’t disappoint.

Anything you can whip up with less of a mess is fine by me!

We love muffins around her and so do my kids friends.

I like to test blog recipes on their friends because my kids can’t always be trusted. Let’s just say these passed the test!

What do I love about this vegan lemon muffin recipe?

I love that they don’t use any lemon extract. There is for sure a time and place for lemon extract, but a little can go a long way.

The first time I made them I used extract and it was just too much.

This uses fresh lemon and lemon zest.

I also tried to keep these muffins lower in the fat content but still high in the flavor profile.

With the use of the vegan yogurt it helps you cut down on the fat to only 1/4 cup in the whole recipe.

How do you zest a lemon?

  • Wash the lemon well and dry it
  • Take a box cheese grader and use the smallest size or a citrus zester if you have one
  • Try to only get the yellow part and not the white fleshy stuff below it.
  • Don’t zest too early or else the peel tends to get a bit dried out.
  • Use in the recipe as needed.

Make your vegan buttermilk by taking a liquid measuring cup and combine the 1/2 cup vegan milk with the 1 TB vinegar, stir and set aside.

Take a large mixing bowl and combine the dry ingredients, stir. And then add the wet ingredients and stir until combined.

This is a thicker batter.

Take a large cookie scoop and scoop the batter evenly until the prepared muffin tin.

I have realized that online education is getting well-known because attaining your degree online has become a popular alternative for many people. A lot of people have not really had a chance to attend a conventional college or university nevertheless seek the increased earning possibilities and career advancement that a Bachelors Degree grants. Still other individuals might have a qualification in one course but would want to pursue some thing they already have an interest in.
